The final round of the Community Business Bright Ideas Fund will open for applications on 1 November on MyCommunity.org.uk.
The Bright Ideas Fund offers grants and support to new community business ideas across England. For this final round, there is one significant change to the eligibility criteria:
“The community organisation applying must not have been constituted for more than five years at the time of making an application. This is to ensure that we are considering new groups only.”
You can read more about the eligibility criteria, the key dates and how to apply for round 3 of the Bright Ideas Fund in the updated guidance notes which have been released today, and on the My Community website.
Round 3 of the Bright Ideas Fund closes at 5pm on 1 December. If you have any questions or need some help with the application process, please visit the My Community Help Centre.
